    Dream Wedding Became Reality

    My Husband and I said our "I Do's" on 6/11/2022, in the Chesapeake Ball Room at 11am. Catering by Uptown/Celebrations at the Bay was the 1st and only venue we looked at, from the fantastic value for your money including décor, cake, catering etc., to the breathtaking water view, I cried and we knew this was the place. Stephanie, our day of coordinator. I can't say enough great things about her. Meeting the day before to go over everything, and what happens if its pouring rain? Remember I said 11am start time, it was raining all morning, so I text Stephanie at 7am and said lets move the ceremony inside, she responded right away with no problem and got it done! Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality!
